Made of goat leather and ripstop nylon, the Pinto has the durability you might expect in a pair of work gloves with technical features tuned for the mountain. High-loft insulation with a microfleece lining craft a cozy interior while the rugged outer stands up to the elements. A knit cuff makes for fuss-free on-off and wears well with a variety of layers, from hoodies to shells. It's no-nonsense hand protection for the long haul.
Dakine started in 1979 on the shores of Maui, when Rob Kaplan set out to create a bombproof surf leash. With a move to the mountains, the business naturally expanded into snow sports. Some of Dakine's most iconic pieces were created out of the wants and wishes of local skiers and snowboarders who strolled in and out of the new office. Dakine pride themselves on the high quality of their products, and we are yet to come across someone who isn't impressed with their durability.
